'A fascinating, freewheeling examination of ideas of debt, balance and revenge in history, society and literature - Atwood has again struck upon our most current anxieties' The Times 'A stimulating, learned, and stylish read from an eminent author writing from a heartfelt perspective ... very provocative' Conrad Black 'Could hardly be more timely ... as clear a summary of the situation as I have read' Financial Times 'Lively and exceedingly timely ... At a time when so many of us are mired in debts of the financial variety it is worth remembering that it is the other, non-financial debts that we owe - to the planet, and to each other - that may prove most important' Observer --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

it reminds us that economics should not be about boring numbers and statisticsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 December 2017
This is an usual but important book. While the earlier chapters are interesting, it is the final chapter that has most resonance. Written but a non-economist, it reminds us that economics should not be about boring numbers and statistics, but the impact of our actions on the wider society and environment. Oour politicians could read and learn from this.
